Questioning why cities are not built in modular ways.

In his latest exhibition, “Mixing-Room,” interdisciplinary designer Jobe Burns ponders: “are the mind and body separate.” Driven by this question, the artist unveiled several new pieces of furniture at NikeLab’s 1948 studio in London, utilizing unconventional shapes to explore how individuals navigate the “public and private” and to investigate why cities do not employ more modular and communal features.

Burns’ furnishings could equally be viewed as sculptures throughout the installation. The Adaption Chair could both act as a seat or an abstract object depending on its placement, while the artist’s custom “Burns Pearlescent Pink” offered an inviting colorway for the piece nonetheless. In A Reminder of Play Baseball, bats are turned into the legs for an 88-inch high resin table. Meanwhile, several rigid figurines serve to reflect on different emotional phases: I Like Who I’m Becoming, Satisfaction and I’m Holding Up.

“Mixing-Room” recently debuted as a part of Frieze London, but more of Burns’ work can be viewed by visiting Concreteobjects.com.
